Firewall rules deleted after update

All my firewall rules are lost after the last update to
DSM 5.1-5022 Update 2

My ruleset was quite complex.

Please consider this for the next update or provide a mechnism to export the rules (for Backup).

Next time, before you do an upgrade, just export your configuration. After the upgrade, you can reload your configuration.
